15Wikipedia's page of quotes from scientists opposing global warming is little more than a playground for cranks to put up anti-global warming arguments. It's up for deletion for the fifth time, but the crazy global warming deniers are already out in force. Will Wikipedia finally grow a brain and delete it?
2And this is why mobocracy doesn't work. We again applaud Stephen Harper for moving a once-fabled country into the Stone Age.

-13The folks at Susan G. Komen for the Cure are not going to get much sleep for a while: besides all the wingnut slop, they now face condemnation for "commodifying breasts and breast cancer" by making breast cancer advocacy an apolitical matter rather than a feminist pet-peeve.
16Someone must be doing something right if Karl Rove is offended.

7Afghanistan was an "ally" of the Soviets during Operation Cyclone, rather than being under Soviet occupation. Yugoslavia committed no genocide in Kosovo. Everyone who presently opposes the Syrian regime is a U.S. lackey. And things in Syria are just dandy.
